Not sure which CAD software he mentions, but I know of none which would do that. The one I use at work uses a key on the keyboard (D) to toggle between radial and diameter.
I stand corrected, I though Fusion was switching between radius and diameter (it's been a while) and I just checked and this "more ergonomic" input method as you named Abdullah is only available for segment dimension not circle radius.
(not trying to hijack thread, just to illustrate possible ergonomic of our dimension tool)
In this gif you see that the location of the mouse relative to the segment will pre-select the type of measures (length/vertical/horizontal) depending on the relative cursor location. But that does not work with the circle as i though at the end (but could).
I have mentioned in the past similar feature for the angle constraint here that use the same tool/icon but detect an angle constraint from the object selection:
Maybe we don't need to go all the way to a single dimension icon tool, but we could have more ergonomic, I know I've seen discussion on the fact that the GUI/UX is not discussed or considered a lot in FC. But gui/ux is hard and changing user habits is even harder...
